BIP 40: Grants Round 3

Category: Governance
Scope: Determine Badger Grants for Month 3
Status: Accepted


  • Outline who should receive month 3 grants from the treasury
  • Present new grant structure
  • The responsibilities of those receiving grants


The Badger team continues to grow and we are beginning to really see the results of our efforts come to fruition. Over the past month, TVL in Badger has crossed the $1.5B threshold with close to $3M/month in revenue. These incredible achievements are made possible through the hard work of those committed to the project, and their continuous efforts to drive utility and value for the Badger token and community. Of course, none of this could have been achieved without the incredible support and passion of the community.

This proposal outlines compensation for those in the Badger community who have driven these results, and who deserve grants for their contributions. As compensation, we will leverage the treasury in the form of BADGER. Since the previous round of grants, there have been additional contributors that have completed bounties as well as those who have joined the team on a more continuous basis.


New Grant Structure

With the continued growth of BadgerDAO and the launch of the Badger Grants Program, we’d like to take a moment to clear up any confusion regarding the monthly grants process. In alignment with BIP 28 BIP 28: Badger Grants Program, monthly grants will now be called “Monthly Community Grants”, and within these grants, we will have 3 sections: Retroactive, Monthly, and Ongoing (Quarterly).

New contributors will fall under retroactive for work that they’ve completed and for monthly grants for work that they’ve committed to deliver. Proven contributors will fall under Ongoing Grants to be paid monthly with static Badger amounts over quarterly timeframes with the goal of accelerating these contributors into our long term program.

Payments for monthly and ongoing contributors will be made at the beggining of the following month or 30 days from the Grant round posting. For example Grants Round 3 contributors will be paid on April 1st for the work during the month of March.
